Primary Instructor:


We often think of time as a force we are unable to control. All we can do is measure its passing. Yet the societies we live in and we as individuals also shape temporality. How do we come to experience time? How can we study or rethink our experience with and in time? Through a series of discussions, practical exercises, and readings in German—poetry, short stories, essays, history, movies, etc.—we will investigate the multiple meanings time can have for us.

Class Format:

Very occasionally (ca. once every three weeks)—on days that will be marked on the syllabus and be announced in class—we will meet online to change pace and deepen in-class activities through work in break out sessions and general discussion. We will discuss this format at the beginning of the term.
